Require private messaging with for known OTR users.
Current OTR settings allow for:
- Require OTR messaging with everybody.
- Don't require OTR messaging with anybody.
However, this is too black and white, and I believe that an important option is missing:
- Require OTR with users for whom I have OTR keys.
The rationale is simple: if I have an OTR key for a certain user, I know he uses OTR, so I want to have private conversations with him. For the rest of the users (those for whom I lack OTR keys), I don't want to require OTR, since it's likely that their client doesn't support it (or they don't use it already for some particular reason).
An alternative way around this feature, it to attempt to establish a private converstaion when sending/receiving the first message from a contact if there is already a key for said contact.
